Abstract:
More than half of the world’s population are now living in urban areas, which places city infrastructures under increasing pressure. Energy and water scarcity, traffic congestion, waste disposal and safety risks from ageing infrastructures are the challenges that big cities are facing. With the development of internet and mobile technology, cities and people are more connected than ever which generated large volume of data.
This talk will give a showcase of using space-time analytics to mine these “big” data (such as transport, crime, health and social media data) to tackle challenges in big cities, and to deliver intelligent service and government towards smart cities.
